The Poodles

we didn't mind when they put in the cubicles
and supplied the snack bar
only with sugar and fat

we didn't mind the
ergonomic chairs and leg irons

we didn't mind the
intravenous caffeine
or the brain surgery

we do
complain how those poodles strut
when they bark to us about our quotas
and how they pee
at the corners of our enclosures

we complain
but they never do anything
about it

from Purgatorial (2004)
